Cuba, 1961. Democratic activists have launched a full-scale insurgency against the emerging Communist dictatorship of Fidel Castro. Abroad, a group of Cuban exiles has allied itself with the United States government and created an assault force called Brigade 2506. The Brigade’s mission: invade Cuba, oust Castro, and establish democratic government on the island. By the time Brigade 2506 hits the beaches at the Bay of Pigs, it has been abandoned by its powerful ally.
In the closing of The Struggle Begins, Book I of The Unbroken Circle series, three cousins, Goyo, Roberto, and Emilio, flee Cuba after nearly being arrested for conspiring against the Castro government. In Book II, Freedom Betrayed, they join Brigade 2506 and take part in the epic three-day battle that will determine the future of their homeland. The rest of their family, still in Cuba, is forced to endure the invasion’s consequences and finds itself at the mercy of a full-blown totalitarian state. Its plight worsens when its two youngest members are sent out of Cuba, by themselves, as part of an airlift of Cuban refugee children.
A spellbinding family saga brimming with rich characters, this true to life work of historical fiction offers readers a front row seat to one of the most heart-wrenching struggles for freedom of modern times.
